Great start to the growing season

Well, last year was surprisingly early and this year has been even hotter, and our vines are ahead of last year even.

Bud break was about the same time as last year, but April was very warm (warmest that even veteran grape growers on the island can remember) so our vines have been growing like crazy and are already getting ready to bloom in some cases.

I've almost caught up on vineyard work after our struggles in the early parts of this year - looks like everything is progressing nicely.
